          Dear guest, thank you for your positive comments regarding Whitemead, I was the show host/DJ on duty on the weekend in question and fully understand your comments regarding the type of music we played over the weekend. To explain why we played the 'cheesy' party music after the acts finished on both nights. After the quality acts we had on both nights had finished their shows, I did start playing the 'middle of the road' songs such as Shania Twain, Dolly Parton, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and other popular songs to get people dancing and to provide a varied mixture of songs. No one was dancing and after about 30 minutes of playing these songs people were were just hand tapping to the music, On both evenings one of the guests requested some party songs including Macarena and Cha Cha Slide etc. As soon as I played the first one, around 20 people got up and danced to all of them. Looking back on this weekend we have 2 family groups that danced to all these songs but not the middle of the road songs, so to keep them entertained, I did play the party songs for them on both nights and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It is sometimes a balancing act to ensure we entertain all of our guests by playing a selection of music for everyone which we endeavour to do, having tried on both evenings to play the general songs with no one dancing, I did revert to the party music as requested by guests. I do always ask for music requests and would have been happy to play any requests for your favourite songs. Having looked back at the digital playlist for the weekend which records the music we played, the song you mentioned above (Cha Cha Slide) in particular was played at 7.50 and again 10.50 approximately on each of the nights. We have a policy of playing songs a maximum of twice on each evening to avoid over playing of certain songs. We do record our playlists to comply with the Performing Rights Society. We also use the new large screen to give our guests an interactive experience and to dance along to with both dance routines and music video's for an enhanced visual experience. We do strive to continually improve the entertainment for all of our guests and we do value your comments and will use these to further improve our service, many thanks. Paul (Polo) DJ/ show host.

          Ask for a pet friendly cabin when you book they have a small number of units where they allow pets.
